||Kids Philosophy Slam
||The Kids Philosophy Slam is an annual program designed to make philosophy fun and accessible to all kids, as well as to help promote critical thinking skills and encourage dialogue with other students and adults. The Philosophy Slam asks kids to answer a philosophical question such as "What is the Meaning of Life?" Depending on their age, kids can express themselves in words, artwork, poetry or song. Each grade level has its own national winner, and the top four high school students debate the question at the national finals. The winner earns the title of "The Most Philosophical Student in America" Schools also compete for the title of" The Most Philosophical School in America".

"The Mission of the Kids Philosophy Slam is to give kids a voice, and to inspire kids to think by unlocking their intellectual and creative potential through a unique and powerful philosophical forum." This would be a great competition for kids in grades k-12 to answer questions about life and share their views about certain aspects of life.
